 “WOMEN ON FARMS” DISPLAY PROJECT

The Victorian Women on Farms Gathering Collection consists of 1000 items including symbolic ‘icons’, interviews, photographs, videos and a range of memorabilia. The objects collected from each Gathering symbolise the meaning of place and contemporary issues impacting that rural area. The Collection covers the first twenty years of the Victorian Women on Farms Gatherings, 1990-2009. Further information can be found on the Museum Victoria website:
